Track Name: Promises
We've walked this path for so long
We've been through thick and thin
Are you still listening?
Yet when you had the chance you let me fall
You buried all our dreams
And grew away from me

You made those promises to me
But I won't fold or demise from everything
you've done to me
Where are you now?
Are you happy yet?
Are you living with no regrets?

When you must stand for only selfish ways
Your promises are meaningless

So tell me where were you when I was falling down?
Where were you when my world was falling down?

I never thought that it would end like this
You left me standing here on my own
Without love you will have nothing left
Until you're empty of all your hate

You threw away everything we worked for
You burned the bridges that we built together
But I won't give up on this
No I won't give up on this
I will stand here forever

I've been here and I will stand forever
I've been here and I will stand forever

Where are you now?
Are you happy yet?
Are you living with no regrets?

When you must stand for only selfish ways
Your promises are meaningless

After all the things you've done
After all the promises you made
How could you do this to me?
How could you do this to me?

After all the things you've done
After all the promises you made
How could you do this to me?
How could you do this to me?

So let me ask you
Why would I
Just even try to be just like you

I never thought that it would end like this
You left me standing here on my own
Without love you will have nothing left
Until you're empty of all your hate

I've been here and I will stand forever
I've been here and I will stand forever
Track Name: Let You Go
(Whoa, whoa oh oh)
(Whoa oh oh, whoa oh oh)

We began this dream together
Now I wake up alone
As the world passes by
You're no where to be found, (you're no where to be found)

Used to look to the sun for warmth
Now I hide in the shadows
Hoping it won't find me
To burn me up, (to burn me up)

I would give up all I have
Just to bring you back
Never knew that it'd be so hard
Not having you around
I dream of a place where you're here
Where I know that no one can take you
Away, (away)
From me

Now I wish things would be changed
I wish she could be saved
I won't let you go
I won't let you go
Are you even listening?
Please I take back everything
I won't let you go
I won't let you go

It still feels like it's just a dream
It feels like you never left
All times and the memories we shared
They still live in me

And now this place is fading fast
Take me back to where to
Where we started from
Oh tell me what to do, (oh tell me what to do)

I would give up all I have
Just to bring you back
Never knew that it'd be so hard
Not having you around
Why can't you stay right here?
Where I know that no one can take you
Maybe one day I'll see
That you're still with me

(I feel so empty)

Sometimes life takes everything we love the most
Sometimes it feels like the pain will never stop

(I wish I could go back in time and tell you how much I love you)
(but instead I'm here wishing that you were right next to me )
(I feel so empty)
(I'm drowning, I'm drowning)

Oh, oh

Now I wish things would be changed
I wish she could be saved
I won't let you go
I won't let you go
Are you even listening?
Please I take back everything
I won't let you go
I won't let you go
Track Name: A New Hope
Every day it seems to get harder
The walls closing in, you think that there is no escape
We're all searching for the answers in life
For a sign to point us the right way

But it just seems like it's always the same
I try, I try but things don't seem to change
I'm just a shadow I'm an outcast
I just need to escape from this place

Where's the light at the end of the tunnel?
I'm trapped here on my own
With all my strength I promise to break free
But nothing's changing and I know
There is always a chance
As long as I believe
I'm not giving up
So don't give up on me

At your wits end with nothing to lose
Searching for the light you haven't a clue
Nothing's changed, all is lost
I don't think I can take any more

You can't define me,
You can't define me
I will stand on my own
(on my own)
I've lived my whole life trying to find a way
But every single time you try to take it all from me
I'm sick and tired of you telling me what's wrong or right
So shut your mouth it's time for me to live my life

I can see the light
Shining through the darkness
Against all odds
I'm still here

(I can see the light)
With nothing left to lose
(Shining through the darkness)
I have everything to prove
(Against all odds)
I will not face away the same as those
(I'm still here)
That have given up on you

I can see the light
Shining through the darkness
Against all odds
I'm still here

Where's the light at the end of the tunnel?
I'm trapped here on my own
With all my strength I promise to break free
But nothing's changing and I know
There is always a chance
As long as I believe
I'm not giving up
So don't give up on me
Track Name: Hell Is Empty And All The Devils Are Here
I've got the devil on my back
Tryin' to hold me down
He tells me everything will be just fine
Save me a special place that I'll call mine

Hell has been empty for quite some time
I can't trust him cause he might be lying
The world is over and they're coming for you
I know if i don't move I will be dead soon

There's no place to hide
You stay and there will be blood
Run for your lives
All of the devils are here
You won't see 'em comin'
No where is safe for us
Run for your lives
All of the devils are here

All of the devils are here

You try to run but there is no escape
And now it's time for you to pay your debt

They aren't the same as you
Take what you love with you
Run for your lives
All of the devils are here
Don't turn your back and do
What they always want you to
Run for your lives
All of the devils are

Here

Just when you thought that you would be so safe
They came to strike you down and took you away

They're everywhere
So don't be scared

I thought that I could live with no regrets
You played with those hearts like you didn't care
Let me tell you now there's always a price to pay
What will you do now that there's no one here for you

They aren't the same as you
Take what you love with you
Run for your lives
All of the devils are here
Don't turn your back and do
What they always want you to
Run for your lives
All of the devils are

(Here, here)
There's no place to hide
(All the devils are)
(Here, here)
You better run for your life
(All the devils are)
(Here, here)
No where is safe for us
(All the devils are)
(Here, here)
Track Name: Mirrors
Is this who you wanted to be?

I don't fit in follow the rules
Or make others happy cause they want me to
I stand for those who try to fight
Running up hill full speed for my life
In the end there's just one person in my way
Holding me back from everything

(Mirror won't you look at me?)
(Tell me the truth)

When we are not enough
Here's to those that fight yourself
I'm not perfect by any means
So say what you want about me
Mirror, mirror only speak the truth about
The lies I can't hide from you
At least I won't be asking why

Is this what you wanted?
Is this who you wanted to be?
Is this what you wanted?
(Is this who you wanted to be?)

The one that you loved is no longer the same
You slowly turned into your deepest, darkest fear
You let your mistakes define who you are
And your sins are now what you live by
Every night before you lay on the floor
You promise to yourself that this will all stop
I hope one day you learn that this is not the way
And finally show the world who you really are

When we are not enough
Here's to those that fight yourself
I'm not perfect by any means
So say what you want about me
Mirror, mirror only speak the truth about
The lies I can't hide from you
At least I won't be asking why

Who am I? Yeah, yeah
Who am I? Yeah, yeah

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you wanted to be?

When we are not enough
Here's to those that fight yourself
I'm not perfect by any means
So say what you want about me
Mirror, mirror only speak the truth about
The lies I can't hide from you
At least I won't be asking why

Is this what you wanted?
Is this who you wanted to be?
Track Name: Weight Of The World
(With the weight of the world)
(With the weight of the world)

Here's the love of a stranger
Yet a hand not to trust
All my dreams come true
But it's never enough
Disconnected and afraid to be whole again
As we are all becoming monsters
One way or another
Surviving off each other

With the weight of the world
I refuse to be fine
With the weight of the world
I will never say die
With the weight of the world
You will not keep me down
With the weight of the world
I do not feel alone

The hurt from my skin shows
These colors always stay
Like memories that never fade
But to admit defeat before the war
Is a battle I'd never win
It's not too late to begin again

With the weight of the world
I refuse to be fine
With the weight of the world
I will never say die
With the weight of the world
You will not keep me down
With the weight of the world
I do not feel alone

We will live another day
To just fail another way
At the hands of someone else
The end of everything
Bad versus evil is never the choice
We rely on ourselves
To not diei by each other

They will try
To destroy
Everyone
From our backs
It's up to us
Over come
Lift us up
To not stop


With the weight of the world
I refuse to be fine
With the weight of the world
I will never say die

(With the weight of the world)
(With the weight of the world)

I refuse to be fine
With the weight of the world
I will never say die
With the weight of the world
You will not keep me down
With the weight of the world
Track Name: Betrayal
I'll leave the knife in my back
Just in case you forgot where you left it
You think the world revolves around you
The center of the universe
Everyone should know your name
How dare they not know anything
You don't want them to
It should be you, only you

I've got news for you
The secret's out
There's nothing to tell
I don't owe you anything
You can't hide behind
The truth is clear
We don't care at all
Why don't you move along?

I will never break
Forget myself
Even defeat
Won't conquer me
People never change
Always hiding
The truth hurts me
As forgiveness fades

Ain't it funny how
Loyalty gets the best of us
You took every second chance I gave
When all we had was trust
When it always takes year to build
But only seconds to break
The saddest thing about betrayal is
It never comes from your enemies

Hurt me with the truth
So naked and afraid
I'd take a bullet for you
But it turns out you're the one pointing the gun
Sorry, not sorry
Doesn't stop the pain
Was it worth it for you?
Dear Karma, I might have a list of people you missed

I will never break
Forget myself
Even defeat
Won't conquer me
People never change
Always hiding
The truth hurts me
As forgiveness fades

I won't be what you want
I won't be what you need
How does your heart exist
So selfishly
I can't be who you are
I won't be what you dream
You can't stop what's
Inside of me

I will never break
Forget myself
Even defeat
Won't conquer me
People never change
Always hiding
The truth hurts me
As forgiveness fades
Track Name: Slave
Make believe and my blind hypocrisy
We all live in disbelief
Fighting for what we refuse to speak

Our love is all and can carry us far
But now it isn't free
A price we all pay indefinitely

I am a slave
I won't give to take
I work for everything
Not just a wage
Grinding away
Cause that's the way you want me
Falling to my grave
Cause I am a slave

Day after day we all hope wishes will come true
Instead we're left with treasures so heavy we can not move
They promised us a taste of what they do
At least they said they were going to

I need to escape
Cause I can't keep living like this
No, I can't keep living this way
I wish that some how things would change
I'll follow my heart and my soul
Until were fucking dead

I am a slave
I won't give to take
I work for everything
Not just a wage
Grinding away
Cause that's the way you want me
Falling to my grave
Cause I am a slave

When nobody ever wants to end this way
You are my saving grace
I want out this place
To a go where I belong

We work for days and nights without a single break
You keep filling our hearts with all your grateful words,
With all your hopeful promises
We've been in this world for so long
I hope that one day you'll learn that
We won't stop until we're dead

And I know chances are slim enough
But I know the time we spend is all I'm hoping for

I am a slave
I won't give to take
I work for everything
Not just a wage
Grinding away
Cause that's the way you want me
Falling to my grave
Cause I am a slave

When nobody ever wants to end this way
You are my saving grace
I want out this place
To a go where I belong

When everything is beautiful
Take yourself out of the picture
A soft, subtle reminder
That everything is better without you
Track Name: We Are Legion
We live under the shadows
Rejected from society
They try to take what we love
And control our thoughts
But when we stand together
We're much bigger than this

This is our call to all
For those who've had enough

We all must stand as one
Stand up
So are you with me?
You can't stop us all
As one
We are many
We won't back down

We give our lives for our dreams
And poured our hearts for this
You won't take this from us
As one we will stand

You can not ignore us forever
So we all choose to die together

We all must stand as one
Stand up
So are you with me?
You can't stop us all
As one
We are many
We won't back down
So let me hear you sing
We scream
We won't be silenced
Let's throw our hands up
We fight
We are many
We won't back down

You won't take what we've worked so hard for
We won't stop until our dreams come true
You won't take what we've worked so hard for
We won't stop until our dreams come true

We believe
This is ours to keep coming down
Make the leap
Until your mind is free oh oh oh
Tell it to the world I see
You were never there for me
Now I just want you to be found
My heart in the air and my feet on the ground

We all must stand as one
Stand up
So are you with me?
You can't stop us all
As one
We are many
We won't back down
So let me hear you sing
We scream
We won't be silenced
Let's throw our hands up
We fight
We are many
We won't back down

When hope is all we have
We'll rise as one
When hope is all we have
We'll rise as one
When hope is all we have
We'll rise as one
When hope is all we have
We'll rise as one
Track Name: Primrose Path
You're a mess, you're a shell
Of your former self
I digress, it's what's left
Of nothing grateful
Now your shadow stands taller than you could ever be
I am alive
Defying gravity
Yet you take pride

You take pride in yourself
But all you'll ever live by
Is just a shadow of someone else
That you wish you could be
You always claimed to be a saint
And talk about the love you spread
But at the end of the day
You never fail to show your true self

Distress
Cause you aren't the same as us
Chase away what lifts you up
Your heart turned from stone to dust
Your world is just fantasy

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer
No matter how hard you struggle you're still starting over
At least I still have a hope
That wants to believe
So don't act like a victim when you turn the other cheek
Your bleeding heart's not on your sleeve
Live by what you mean
Not what you fake

So tell me what is it worth fighting for
When everything that you live by is a lie
So tell me what is it worth fighting for
When everything that you live by is a lie

You're living your life full of lies
You're hiding behind a disguise

When you realize
That real lies
Come from real eyes
It maybe your demise
Don't take pride
In living a lonely life

Distress
Cause you aren't the same as us
Chase away what lifts you up
Your heart turned from stone to dust
Your world is just fantasy
Track Name: No Matter What
I know you're scared but just remember
Who we are now and the places we've come from

All I wanna say is that I've been around this town a few times
Not much left to feel about how this place has gone to hell inside
I wanna scream and shout but the will is leaving me to die
Can't figure out how this world works for you and I

Our eyes haven't changed us
Who we've been has not made us
Make it last like we're the only
If all I had was you I would not worry

My love, my love be stronger
Hold me, hold me until the time comes
Breathe in, breathe in the moment
We must break the rules we know

When I thought things would leave me stranded here at my lowest
You drew in closer through my fragile mind and out in time
Out from what seemed like a dream, it could be so surreal
The love to lead me through the fear I hoped it would be you

We're not the scars on our skin
The bright beautiful souls from within
We're not the clothes we wear
But the dreams we share
We are the promises
Between all the lies and tricks we've been fed
Don't listen to all the noise
Just hear my voice, I say

My love, my love be stronger
Hold me, hold me until the time comes
Breathe in, breathe in the moment
We must break the rules we know

Show me, show me your sunrise
Live in, live in the death in your eyes
Coming, coming together
I have waited all my life

No matter what they say won't change us
No matter what they say won't change us

No matter what they say won't change us
No matter what they say won't change us
No matter what they say won't change us
No matter what they say, I say

My love, my love be stronger
Hold me, hold me until the time comes
Breathe in, breathe in the moment
We must break the rules we know

Show me, show me your sunrise
Live in, live in the death in your eyes
Coming, coming together
I have waited all my life
Track Name: The Hunter And The Lion
Don't look away
Focus yourself when heading on
The dangerous path we take
I'm on the hunt
When out from the darkness
Stands the most beautiful prey
Nothing is sacred on the battlefield
Our eyes meet marks the romance

Breathe in, exhale
As we slip away
Breathe in and exhale
Life and death

The world dissolves to nothing around us
So violent and alive
Seconds tick away waiting to strike
Each for our own to survive
I bide my time for the moment to be right
We begin and end with no signs
This is my chance
This is my chance

Breathe in, exhale
As we slip away
Breathe in and exhale
Life and death

I hold my breathe with aim so true
I release my arrow on to you
When it pierces your flesh the skies you'll see
Time is our fading memory

Lying here on the grass
Joined together but not last
In the end our fortune true
We will meet again someday soon
